( cheers and applause ) new york, finally, new york state's gay and lesbian community are free from the burden that was having to set foot in connecticut in order to get marr
show with jon stewart." captioning sponsored by comedy central [theme song playing] [cheering and applause] >> jon: welcome to the dail show. my name is jon stewart. our guest tonight, dr. cameron diaz. that will make sense later on in the program. you will see. she has graciously agreed to perform a surgical procedure on... [laughter] on tonight's program. a quick word before we get going to the tourist community, to the visitors to this great land of ours. if you've been here eight months, you live here. you live here. you're not from venezuela. [cheering and applause] donde esta you're mine. seven years of spanish, all i remember. [laughter] donde esta. let's begin tonight perhaps in america, the land of opportunity, where the streets are paved with let's say cinnabuns. [laughter] and yet we are nation besieged with problems, problems we must solve. problem number one, our gooey, rat-infested cinnabun-paved streets. why did we do that? that was a dopey material to pave our streets with. [laughter] we're going to need common-sense solutions to our problems if we're not just
and gentlemen, all right. also cashing in the perfect time to roll out my new jon stewart brand tuxedos. all the elegance of a tuxedo but with the flattering physique. >> (cat yowling). >> jon: indeed. fray fry's decision brings the total number of states permitting gay marriage to 7. 41 other states still have laws on the books explicitly banning same sex marriage. it's why many gay activists are looking for federal action to achieve national marriage equality. last thursday barack obama addressed that very question. >> i have long believed that the so-called defense of marriage act ought to be repealed. >> jon: hear, hear, yeah! i assume the president's problem with the defense of marriage act is that it should be a federal law in support of gay marriage. >> part of the reason that doma doesn't make sense is that traditionally marriage has been decided by the states. (audience groaning). >> jon: really? the gentleman with mixed race parents playing the states no best card. you know, when i was born... ( cheers and applause ) when i was born my parents' marriage would have been illegal in
you find a good one, tell me about him. >> where might i look. >> stephen: jon stewart. (laughter) he's really funny. he's really funny. let me ask you, political writing from a decade without a name this past decade, you mean. >> it's a weird decade which in a way begins with 9/11 and i think ends on the fourth of november 2008 when barack obama was elected president. and i think the very different agenda comes because obama's election comes with a financial and economic crisis. and suddenly that whole narrative which is that we're living through the fourth world war, that world history for the next 20, 30 years will is all going to be about the battle with islamist terrorism t doesn't seem to be quite like that any more. >> stephen: what is the battle? where is the fourth world war? >> i'm not sure. let's hope there isn't the fourth world war but what i do think, i have an account in this book of a very extraordinary meeting with george w bush in the early summer of 2001. don't look like that. >> stephen: hi an extraordinary meeting with him too once. but go ahead. >> i want to hear
of the media, between jon stewart, of comedy central, of course, and chris wallace. i think chris wallace laid down an interesting line here on what fox is all about. i think it's fair to say what he says now in this, perhaps, unhe herselfed comment than ever said by the advertising of fox when they called themselves fair and balanced. let's listen to chris wallace. >> you believe that fox news is exactly the ideological equivalent of nbc news? >> i think we're the counter -- i think that they have a liberal agenda and we tell the other side of the story. >> well, there's an admission by ron and then, josh, not saying fair and balances, he's saying they're a balancing act of the point of view of the major broadcast networks and i guess us? >> yeah. >> that's right. abc, nbc, cbs, the "new york times," everybody else in the media is part of a liberal conspiracy and poor, lonely little fox is out there all on their own counterbalancing this. of course, he admitted in saying that, they are, in fact, a conservative voice. a right-ring voice in the media and the difference between fox and, let's sa
did "the daily show with jon stewart" bakley he has mark zuckerberg on call. twitter is another reiteration, and obama knows that the youth live there. for 2012, the youth were a critical vote in the last election. >> the 2008 election. they were not so helpful last time. jonathan, look at this, 2008, 18% of voters were between 18 and 29. that hefty portion helped get this guy elected. they voted for president obama 66-32%. gaby giffords was on that twitter, and e-mail. that's how they communicate now, and now how they get news but get information from friends and relatives and everything else. he's going to voters to where they live. this is new in that sense and also old in a very important way. every president has tried to go around the filter, as president bush liked to call it, go around the filter of the mainstream media. bill clinton did it by going on hall and king, george w. bush did it by talking to regional reporters oftentimes, new president obama is doing it himself by going to facebook, by doing a twitter town hall. this is a way of avoiding, you know, the traditio
'enfant plaza during the jon stewart sanity rally sending dozens of riders tumbling to the bottom. in may, the number of escalators out of service was 103 out of nearly 600 escalators. today, it is around 80. >> i wish they would invest the money in getting the things done faster. >> many of the 82 are out of service because we're rebuilding them, not because they're broken. >> reporter: well, there are other issues in this report card including metro police officers complaining that their radio service is working. sometimes, sometimes not. it is so bad some officers refuse to go to some stations when they have no radio service. that could be a big, huge safety issue. also some rail car reliability that can cause some delays. doors not opening and also injuries to riders have also increased. this report will be presented in front of the metro board later on this morning. andrea? >> surae chinn reporting live at the foggy bottom metro station in northwest washington. >>> a heads up for everyone who uses branch avenue in and out of the district. ddot will close the road at pennsylvania ave
or whatever i'm spooking the audience with. being made fun of my jon stewart. i always say you're not going to survive. you're going to thrive. i think you're burn thrivers. you have taken it and done much more than survive. >> that is a good way to put it. i am now to the point and i think maybe i'm to the point now that i have forgotten all of whatever madness and guilt that i've had, but i am grateful. >> glenn: like childbirth? >> yes. that's a good point. >> glenn: god that is some sort of wicked magic, because women are screaming i want to kill you. then the baby comes out and they're like we have to have another. >> let's go do it again. >> that sounds familiar. [ laughter ] >> that's totally true. >> glenn: we're the ones on earth going don't you remember? >> i know. i know. >> it's a goo thing otherwise we'd only have one child. >> i'm grateful for it now. i can honestly tell you, and my kids ask me all the time. don't you want to just go back? just to how it was before? i don't. i really don't. i have been blessed beyond come rehens that anyone -- comprehension that anyone, they c
to my excluded food intake." unquote. that was jon stewart. he hit the nail on the head. for sure it's easy to make fun but what the president is trying to do with tax expenditures is no laughing matter. liberals talk about tax expenditures as though they were just getting rid of wasteful spending. first, as a legal matter, tax expenditures are not spending. outlays are checks cut from the treasury department are defined as spending under the congressional budget act. that's what spending is. yet, most tax expenditures only lose revenue and do not include an outlay portion. tax expenditures that only lose revenue contain no spending as defined by the congressional budget act and is scored by the official scorekeepers for congress. the joint committee on taxation and the congressional budget office. and second, as a policy matter twhe comes to tax -- when it comes to tax expenditures, one person's loophole is another person's opportunity to save for college and retirement, finance a home and ties to your -- taoeugts -- tithes to your church. reducing tax expenditures is a tax increase
